The overall outlook for the non-life sector remains positive. A gradual rise in the rate of real GDP growth over our forecast period should boost incomes and feed into stronger demand for key non-life lines, including motor, property and health insurance, in what is still a market that is very far from saturated, despite being much more developed than the life sector. On a ten year view, our outlook envisages a moderate to modest trajectory for the Omani life insurance segment, after very strong recent growth driven by requirements for the ex-pat community to purchase policies. Over the very long-term, the Life sector has significant growth potential, driven by rising incomes and growing life expectancies, but the local market remains largely dormant for now.

Key Updates And Forecasts

- 2015 was another strong year for Oman's non-life insurance sector, as preliminary data indicates that gross premiums written rose 9.7% in both USD and OMR terms (to OMR400m), an acceleration from the 7.4% recorded in 2014. We expect robust growth in the non-life sector ranging between 4.4% and 9.1% per year during the period 2016 to 2020.

- GDP growth should be moderately supportive for all sectors, rising from 2.3% in 2016 to 3.1% in 2020. In the life sector, growth is likely to remain reasonably strong (from a low base) in 2016 and 2017, with gross premiums written rising 9.5% and 4.8%, driven overwhelmingly by the expat segment, before a cooling in subsequent years.
